A welcome addition to any Megrim centered deck. Helps with the late game problem of your opponent drawing a card and playing it before you can force a discard. Now they are stuck between possibly losing a card and 2 life or losing 5 life during their next upkeep.

"Are these the Nazis, Walter?"
"They're nihilists, Donny, nothing to be afraid of."

Part of me wants to use this in a deck just so I have an excuse to quote that movie. I could use Nihiliths, Nihil Spellbombs, and fill my playgroup with Nihilistic Glee.

From what I've read on the community spotlight, this card is supposed to be really bad. But I disagree. This, Blightning, Nyxathid, Duress, Megrim, Hellfire Mongrel, Guul Draz Specter, Lavaclaw Reaches and some early game removal such as Smother or Bolt could make this a viable deck in the new Standard.

Are two quest counters put on it if you play one Mind rot effect?

The theory behind discard decks: If you don't have the tools to win, at least make sure that your opponent doesn't either.

I was on the fence about this one until I realized the problem I was having with my Nath of the Gilt-Leaf was that my opponents were out of cards, and I wasn't getting elf tokens. Now, I either get a creature, or a free 5 damage. I love cards with passive abilities.

I'm surprised no one has thought of Myojin of Night's Reach to empty your opponents' hands.

Devastating card for black discard decks. The current set has a LOT of discarding effects for black, so this thing is a potential game winner.

omg... this card > the rack in mono black discard... I can see it wreaking havoc with Hymn to Tourach .

but this card WITH the rack = people not wanting to play with you anymore, the combo will force ragequits. lol

I would run this with Funeral Charm to make sure it can be activated late-game, but if you get it early-game, it's The Rack on crack.

Good with the Standard Specters and great in casual with Hell-Bent cards.

Megrim? What a joke if you're using that on your MBC deck. I totally prefer this one. When there's no card in opponent's hand, Megrim is useless. This is pretty good and excellent if you have a Raven's Crime in your deck. Just imagine if your opponent has no hand in the 5th turn and and Nyxathid is attacking, that's 12 life loss to him. Quick death. I love this card.
